THE PITTSBUKG- DISPATCH,
MONDAY,' MAEOH 25;
Some Opinions About the Lo
cal Team's Makeup.
HILLEE IN THE OTJTEIELD.
BeTised Schedule of the Allegheny
Prince Wilkes, the Famous Trotter, Sold
GENERAL SPOETISG KEWS OF TfiE DAT
Now that the time has come for the local
ball players to get down to wort for the sea
son, everybody interested in the clnb is
wondering how the team will be made up.
So far there has been no desire at all among
the clnb officials to express any definite
opinion on this point. The most that any
of tli cm bas said is that selections will be made
after all are tried. The "trial" will be given
during tlie exhibition games, and probably will
continue into the championship season. This
method of testing the respective abilities of the
players seems all right, and it maybe that there
is all the honesty of nurpose in it claimed by
the officials. It is undoubtedly their right to
make np the team according to their own no
tions, bnt the public bas also a right to hold
and express an opinion on the matter.
There are some points settled already. Beck
ley will play at first and Dunlap at second.
There is an uncertainty, however, regarding
the other two infield positions. Judging from
present indications there are three men for the
two positions, viz., Allen, Smith ana Kuehne.
Ot course the fir-t named
IS AS EXPERIMENT,
and cannot be expected to take full charge of
the short stop territory right away. This is
pretty well understood, bnt how Kuehne and
Smith will be placed is an enigma. It would
seem, however, that Smith at third and
Kuehne at short would be the
best possible arrangement. It is a
well known fact that Dnnlap and
Smith are not as harmonious as little birds in a
nest, and Smith would be just as effective at
third as would Kuehne. Allen could be tried
occasionally, and it may be that bis serfices
would soon be required daily. Whether or
not Dnnlap will hold out is problematical. A
se ere twist of his ankle, w hich is likely to oc
cur at an v time, might disable bim for all or a
good part of the season. At any rate, this is an
emergency that must be prepared for.
The outfield is another matter of conjecture.
A gentleman interested in the club and exceed
ingly well informed on baseball matters stated
i esterday afternoon that the best outfield that
could be arranged would be: Miller left, Han
Ion center and Sunday right. This certainly is
an attractive combination whatever way it is
looked at. Ail three are excellent fielders, first
class base runners and goad bitters Without
doubt they would compare favorably with any
outfield in the country.
A BIG DIFFICULTY.
But the difficulty of arranging this trio rests
in Miller. "Were he to be assigned to the field
the catching power of the club would likely
suffer. However, when the matter is inlly con
sidered, it would seem that the loss would
not be as great as at first imagined. There are
great expectations about Lauer, and if he
turns out to be anything like what he is antici
pated to be. be will be a good substitute for
.Miller behind the bat. Carroll, we all know,
and probably he will be a catcher whether Mil
ler goes into the field or not. The most specu
lative feature is Fields, and if he shows up
well, then Miller can be snared in the outfield.
But if Fields cannot fill the bill, the sooner the
fact is definitely known the better will it be
for all. The club bas kept him two seasons or
more, and it is time be was ranked as a regular
and reliable man, or somebody secured who
can fill these requirements. If the catchers,
outside of Miller, are not good enough, others
must be secured, whether Miller catches or
If Miller is permanently in the field it will
do away with the almost daily changes in the
nine that invariably interferes with success
ful team work. This is a very important fea
ture, and should necessity demand now and
again Miller's presence behind the bat, Con
way would be well able to look after left field.
He is a good fielder and can use the stick with
great effect. It would, therefore, seem that a
team made up as follows would be the best:
Beckley, first; Dunlap, second: Kuebne. short:
Smith, third; Miller, left; Hanlon. center: Sun
day, right. Carroll and Morris, of course,
w sold be one battery, and Fields and Galvin
another. A short experience would enable the
others to be paired.
Willing to be Sold If He fehnres Bin Par
The Xew York Sun has the following to say
about John M. Ward's movements:
It can be set down that John Ward did not
come home simply for the purpose of calling a
meeting of the Brotherhood of Ball Flayers,
or to settle the question as to where he shall
play next season, but solely to look after pri
vate matters. Not only does he say this, bat
his friends Touch for the truth of it. Little or
nothing was learned of Ward's intended move
ments from the conversations had with him
yesterday. He had not become familiar with
the new classification rule, and had received
no offer from the Washington club,' so that he
was not in a position to say anything on either
When asked about his fururr movements,
and what would determine then. Ward said
that salary would decide the while matter. He
said be would be content to co to Washington
if the release money, 12,000, would be divided
cquallv. He hardly thought it fair that the
New York club should dispose of him without
his receiving a share of thefnoney paid. Ward
also said that he desired to Vet away from New
York, but between Washington and Boston he
had not much choice. Hr further said that he
would see Mr. Hewitt of Washington and Man
ager Mutne about the proposed deal in a day
or two. Baseball was a business with him. and
he would be willing to play where he received
the most money. He did not know whether it
was true or not that the Washington club
would offer him $3,000 to manage and play with
the team next season.
riUNCjE WILKES SOLD.
A Cnban Gentleman Pays $30,000 for the
. V Trotter.
-Hakeodsbtjrg. Kt, March St The cele
brated trotting gelding Prince Wilkes has been
sold to a wealthy Cuban gentleman for $30,000.
Colonel Crit Davis, the trainer, started with
him this afternoon for New York, whence he
will be shipped to Havana, Cuba.
"Prince Wilkes was bred near here, and Colo
nel Davis not only trained bim but drove bim
last season, winning eight out of nine races.
Colonel George A. Singerly, of Philadelphia,
Pa., has owned the gelding for years, and ex
pected to trot bim this season and lower his
record of 2J4JJ. Prince Wilkes is 3 j ears old,
and was sired by Red Wilkes, dam Rose Chief
by Brown Chief. He (rot his record at Cleve
land, O- August 3. 18SS. in a iree-for-all race

onlv competitor, and won the first heat in
2:1 Prince Wilkes took the next three
heats in 2:1 2:1 and 22 respectively.
Dexter told 30 years ago for $30,000, the
largest price ever paid for a gelding until this
sale of Prince Wilkes.
WItl Report This Moraine.
'The players of the local club will report for
duty this morning, at 10v30. at Recreation Park.
The outfield will be rolled if rain does not in
terfere, and it is expected that the boys will
get thoroughly down to work on Wednesday.
Dunlap is not expected here to-day, as he is in
terestcd in a real estate deal that demands his
presence in Philadelphia until to-morrow.
Slay Go to Chnttanoogn.
Jt is likely that two more of Pittsburg's ball
players will enters ully into the profession this
season. Chattanooga club is negotiating for
catcher Ed Keating and outfielder Ed
Brown. The prospects are that both players
will bejigned by Chattanooga. They played
with several local clubs last season and did

WEIR AND MURPHY.
The Spider Suva He'll Have to Fight Hard
Chicago, Im. March 2k Ike Weir, "The
Spider," was in jolly good spirits to-day. "Lord,
what beautifnl weather this is!" he said. "I've
just returned from a ten-mile walk about this
fine town, and I feel just as if I conld lick any
lightweight in the country at this minute," and
the little fellow made a swipe at an imaginary
Mnrphy that would have sent him to sleep had
it struck him in the right place.
"Is there going to be any of the Mver-McAu-liffe
sort of fighting in this mill?"
"Not if I know it. 'Parson' Davies has the
stakes and he says he won't give 'cm up till one.
of us is knocked out. Well. I ain't saying that
I'm going to win, bnt I will do my best."
Weir stripped this morning and tipped the
scales at just 117 pounds. This afternoon he
will take a trip in the country to some quiet
place and get the fresh air and do some tall
tramping about the woods and across the hills.
This sort of exercise will constitute the most
of his training. The fight will occur between
the 2Sth and 30th Inst., and, as "Parson" Davies
said to-day, within two hours' ride of Chicago.
The men will enter the ring about midnight.
Murphy, who is training hard at Beloit, Wis.,
weighs 120 pounds. In a letter he says: "I am
in better condition and stronger to-day than I
ever was before in my life. I never felt so con
fident of winning a ncht as I do this time, and
Weir will find out before we are in the ring
many minutes that 1 am not as big a "mark"
as he has been in the habit of fighting."

MILLIONS IN IT.
Some interesting Facta About the American
A correspondent of the Sorteman this week
gives the following interesting facts regarding
the affluence of the American trotting busi
ness: The amount of capital Invested in the busi
ness is enormous, and its rapid growth is almost
startling. It Is impossible for ns to give accu
rate figures concerning the capital Invested,
but we can give an approximate statement of
the investment or value of a few leading farms,
and we think we violate no confidence in doing
so. We know that a number of breeding es
tablishments make yearly estimates of their
property, or as merchants term it, take account
of stock. At the disposal sale of the Glenview
estate more than $400,000 was realized. It is
impossible to estimate the value pf the Wood
burn trotting interest, because the grand estate
is devoted to varied interests, but it de
rives its great fame and its largest in
come from the trotting-borse department.
There are three stallions, Belmont, Harold
and Lord Russell, whose service fee is $300, and
two at a f co of $200. Mr. Brodhead is not an
advocate of excessive stnd service, and about
45 mares to each horse is his limit. There are
51 brood mares on the place, which would leave
about 33 outside mares to each horse, suppose
the number to be evenly divided and the in
come zrom stauion ices would be about hu.iw,
besides the value of the 45 resident mares. Sup
pose we only estimate their service worth the
same as to outsiders, and the total would be
about $53,000 for stud lees alone, supposing all
the mares to be in foal. Bnt as this is not
probable, and 70 per cent would be a fair esti
mate, we have an assured income of not less
than 33,000 from stud fees. Fifteen thousand
dollars each was paid for King Wilkes and
Fallis, but we do not suppose an offer of 25,000
each would be entertained. It is certain Bel
mont, Harold and Lord Russell would not be
for sale, but for sake of argument suppose we
estimate the five at 25,000 each, and we have a
total of 125.000 for five stallions.
There are 50 brood mares, which we think at
auction would bring more than an average of
$4,000, which makes a total of 200,000. Then
there are a large number of colts and fillies
which wonld certainly bring an average of
$2,000. which would swell the estimate to at
least $100,000 more. So that in the trotting
stock alone we have an estimated total of
about $450,000 in this branch of the business
alone, saying nothing of the land. It is only
just to say we have made this estimate from
onr knowledge of the stock, and without con
sultation with Mr. Brodhead. The sales last
year were over $100,000. The Highland Farm,
the home of Red Wilkes, Wilton and Sentinel
Wilkes, is a yonng Institution, and its brood
mares are young and have not the reputation
of those at Wo odbum, but we know its vain
ation is about $300,000. Red Wilkes stands at
$300, Wilton at $200, and Sentinel Wilkes at
$100, and the sales in the past 12 months were
about $80,000. At Ash Grove, where George
Wilkes lies bnried, there are eight entire sons
of George Wilkes, 60 brood mares and
colts, and fillies enough to swell the
total to more than 100. There are stal
lions : there which are not for sale. But
no one wonld doubt that at public sale the eight
would average more tnan $20,000 each. There
are 60 brood mares, some ot which wonld sell
for enormous sums, but a number of them are
young, and for the sake of argument we will
estimate that they would sell at auction for an
average of $2,000. There are 44 colts and fillies,
and it is certain they would sell for enough to
swell the sum to $350,000 for the stock, without
a.ny valuation of land. The Forest City Farm
has six stallions, which we do not believe Mr.
Emery would sell for $140,000. He paid at the
rate of $25,000 for Patron when his record was
only 2:19. and we know he was recently offered
$30,000 for Brown Wilkes. We believe that he
values his establishment at more than $300,000.
The Jewett farms have five stallions by George
Wilkes, besides Jerome Eddv and other valua
ble stallions. They paid $25,000 for Eddv. and
he paid for himself in two yeirs, and the Wilkes
stallions, we should think, if they desired to
sell, they would not price them as low as an
average of $20,000. Their farms, brood mares
and colts would certainly swell the estimate to
enormous figures. There are many other farms
whose value would approximate to these
figures, but we have given only a few as ex
amples, and in each case the estimate is our
own. and is not based on figures given by the
BARKER'S OLD FAULT.
He Disagrees With Jimmy Reed About the
ISFXCTAL TXLEOKAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Boston, March 21 It looks as though the"
proposed checker match between Champion
Charles F. Barker, of Cambridge, and James
P. Reed, of Pittsburg, for $250 a side and the
championship of America wonld fall through
on account of a hitch In the matter of expenses
to be allowed Barker for his trip to Chicago.

OMo Would Like the Place, and General Keifer
Wouldn't Eentse It.
The remains of the late Associate Justice
Matthews are to be removed from "Washing
ton to-day, for burial to-morrow at Cincin
nati. That fact doesn't prevent agreat though
quiet hustle for the office he lately held. No
new names are mentioned except that of
General Keifer, whose Ohio friends imagine
the ex-Speaker has a show for the place.
ISFECTAI. TZLXOEAM TO THE SISFATCIM
Washington, March 24. Notwith
standing the fact that the obsequies of'the
late Justice Matthews have not yet been
conclnded, no office is more extensively
canvassed than the vacant one of the Su
preme Court. Those who try their hand at
assisting President Harrison to make a se
lection for the place find it difficult to
single out any prominent public man who
. fills the bill, and it is therefore rather freely
predicted that Harrison will follow the ex
ample of Cleveland in his last appointment,
and-choose a lawyer of high local repute,
rather than of national repute.
Looking among the Senators none ap
pear to be at all up to the requirements of
the place except some of the old heads, who
are too old, like Edmunds, Hoar and
Evarts, and Senator Spooner, who is in his
47th year. Senator Spooner has made so
high a reputation as a lawyer since his
advent in the Senate, and President Har
rison has asked his advice so frequently in
matters pertaining to his administration,
thus showing the confidence he reposes in
his judgment, that many think the brilliant
young Senator 'may be asked to accept a
seat on the Supreme bench. The Senator's
nearest friends assert, however, that he
would not permit himself to be retired from
the possibilities of politics in which he may
win higher preferment than even the United
States Senate or the Supreme bench.
OHIO'S CLAIMS TOE THE rLACE.
It is an impression with some that the
vacancy will be filled from Ohio, as the '
death of Chief Justice Waite and of Justice
Matthews leaves that State and district
without a representative on the bench, but
Ohio presents no name which appears to
meet with approbation, and there is no
precedent or custom to follow in the present
instance. "When Justice Strong was re
tired the vacancy was filled from Missis
sippi by the appointment of Secretary
Lamar. The vacancy occasioned by the
death of Chief Justice Waite, of Ohio, was
filled by the selection of- M. W. Fuller, of
In making his selection to fill the exist
ing vacancy, moreover, President Harrison
will doubtless take into consideration the
probability of his having to choose one or
two,- and perhaps three, other Supreme
Judges during his term. Justices Fields.
Miller and Bradley have all
passed the age fixed for re
tirement. Jutice Bradley is about 76
and Field and Miller are past 73, being
nearly the same age. None oi the three are
particularly robust, even for their age, and
it is probable that all three will wish to be'
retired before the 4th of March, 1893.
Democrats say, however, that Justice Field
must hold on'at least until after the Presi
dential election of 1892, when, in the event
of Democratic success, he 'could be replaced
by a Judge of his own political faith.
THE CABINET NOT PERMANENT.
Some of the gossips fancy that Attorney
General Miller, the President's late law
partner, will be appointed, but this view
does not have many supporters. It is still
a quite general opinion that Mr. Miller
went into the Cabinet merely to help Mr.
Harrison out of a disagreeable complication
at the last moment to assist him in the
construction of a temporary Cabinet, as it
were with the understanding that he would
Politicians very close to Mr. Harrison
say, as was outlined in The Dispatch
several weeks ago, that Mr. Miller's resig
nation will soon be forthcoming, that Secre
tary Noble will be made Attorney General,
and Assistant Clarkson presented with the
Interior portfolio. These persons also sug
gest that since the death of Jnstice
Matthews Miller may replace Judge
Gresham, and the latter be promoted to the
Supreme bench. They think it would be a
good movement to take Gresham out of the
political field, as he might otherwise be as
troublesome an element in the convention
of 1892 as in that of 1888.
Taking the sentiment of the hotel cor
ridors andof the politicians generally, it is
quite clear that the appointment of Gre
sham would be the most popular that could
be made, and the most politic, also, as it
would strenthen in more ways than one the
President's renominatiou to succeed him

Ex-Speaker Keifer Thought to Have a

ISraCIAT. TELEQItAM TO TBI DISPATCH.
Spbingfiect, O., March 24. The
friends of General J. Warren Keifer, of this
city, Speaker of the House of Representa
tives in 1881 and 1882, are making vigorous
efforts to have him appointed to the place of
Associate Justice of the United States Su

The movement is backed by Senator Sher
man, Sam Shellaharger, ex-Governor Foster
and General Sherman.
The matter leaked out here through ex
Senator Pringle, an intimate lawyer friend
of General Keifer. President Harrison and
the General were intimatelv associated in
army life, and have always been the best of
friends. The friendship of the two men, it
is thought here, may result in Keiier's ap
pointment to the position. The matter has
just become known here, and has created

Confederate Soldiers' Home at Austin, Tex.
General H. H. Barnum presided. Many
Grand Army men were in the audience, in
cluding General T. T. Chittenden and Gen
eral Carl Schurz. There were also numerous
Confederate veterans present. Joseph Stew
art, one of the directors of the home, was
the principal speaker. He said in part:
Sectionalism is betas fast obliterated from
the minds and hearts of men. and the foemen
of 25 years ago now march shoulder to shoulder
in the struggles of civil conflict. The valor
and fortitude of the Confederate dead is an
ever living heritage, not of the South, but of the
entire Union. Both sides of the conflict were hut
fitting exemplars ot the American soldier. We
rejoice that many thousands of Union veterans
are now upon the pension rolls, and about
15,000 are maintained by the Government in
comfortable homes, and at an annual aggregate
expense of about 5100,000,000 and thatttbey are
honored wards of the nation. All honor to
those men, and the Government that sustains
and upholds them with its bounty.
THE INDIANA TROUBLE.
Operators Insist Thnt miners' Wanes Must
Indianapolis, March 24. On the first
of May the existing scale for coal mining
in the Brazil district will expire. It is now
75 cents for bituminous and 90 cents for
block. Day laborers are paid at the rate of
2 tons for a day's work. The operators
bolted the convention at Columbus a few
days ago because their demand for a 12 per
cent reduction was not granted. They
claim they can get coal mined at the reduc
tion. The miners held a nass meeting last
night at Brazil. "Work has been very slack
in the mines forseveral months and many of
the miners have suffered.
A committee was appointed to wait ou
the operators and miners in the interest of
the scale. The operators .propose a reduc
tion of 20 cents. The miners did not ex
press themselves on this point, but a strike
may result, though it is believed it will be
fruitless, A few days since ISO miners em
ployed in a mine near Knights ville accepted
a reduction of 10 per cent.

BETTEE THAN ANY 0THEE.
Tho' Pittsburg Fostofflco System Is Now
Special Inspector C. S. Darby, of "Wash
ington, has been in the city since Friday
examining affairs at the postofSce. In
spector Darby's work is to superintend the
free delivery system, regardless of postoffice
division lines, and with particular attention
to the efforts of the different offices toward
enforcing the eight-hour law.
"With J?. D. Larkin, Superintendent of
Free Delivery in Pittsburg, Inspector
Darby went over the time sheets and papers
of the office, when it w&s found that the
Pittsburg carriers work as follows:
22 five-trip carriers 8:00 10 JO
3 four-trip carriers 7:43 9:45
7 three-trip carriers 7:30 10;0O
17 two-trip carriers 8:00 10:00
lone-trip carrier 8.00 9:00
2 hotels at nlttht carriers 8.00 8:30
7 collectors G:S3 8:30
The first column shows the actual working
time of the carriers, and the second colnmn
shows the hours from the time of reporting
for duty to the time when relieved, and in
cludes meal hours. The table gives the
record of the 9 carriers at the main office.
They work 8 hours, with short shifts, in a
range of 12 to 14 honrs, and the new New
York system is no better than theirs.
The inspector has authority to change the
system of any office, if he sees proper to do
so. He said he had examined over 70 .
offices, and found Pittsburg running under
a better and more accurate system of free
delivery than any of the others.

New York, March 24. A bridge police
man fonnd an old waistcoat in the middle of

of the pockets was a card on which bad been
scribbled with a pencil this legend:

It was written on tho back of a South street
saloon keeper's business card, and there were
no addresses given. There was nothing else in

person as McCarthy or Squire could bo
